Yutang Lin

Exhausting calculations still could not fulfill wishes
Only because self-centered planning is full of biases.
See through net of views; walk according to Dharma.
Rest assured in taking refuge; let Buddha take charge.


In worldly life it is often seen that actions born of exhaustive calculations yield only sorrows of mutual incessant entanglement. Based on limited knowledge and view to attempt to carry through partial and preferential intentions would certainly more likely to run into obstacles and less likely to succeed by rare chances. If one could be unbound from net of views, pay attention only to Dharma practices, and give one's fate completely into the hands of Buddha, only then could Buddha arrange the itinerary and opportunities for such a practitioner.
